The chain separator and line separator options allow for chains and parameters to be grouped or split depending on which settings are turned on. When used, the two separators do the following:
Chain separator. When Start each chain on a new line is on, this separator creates new chain groups on new lines. When Start each chain on a new line is off, this separator starts a new chain wherever it is placed in the New Parameters dialog box. The controls are positioned in one row and wrap at the end of the form.
Note: Start each chain on a new line is turned on by default. This option can be found in the Form settings dialog box.
Line separator. This separator creates a line break wherever it is placed.
To use the chain separator and line separator:
The New Parameter dialog box opens, as shown in the following image.
A copy of the line separator is moved up while the original stays in the starting position. This is so you can add multiple line separators.
A copy of the chain separator is moved up while the original stays in the starting position. This is so you can add multiple chain separators.
The New Parameters dialog box will look like the following image.
The report is added to the HTML page. COUNTRY and CAR are on the first line and make up one chain. MODEL, BODYTYPE, and SEATS are on the second line, while SALES is on a separate, third line. MODEL, BODYTYPE, SEATS, and SALES make up a second chain.
The parameters are shown in the following image.
